181 BROWN, James W. Chiasma, 14). CAMUS, Albert). Sensing, Seeing, Saying in Camus' Noces : A Meditative Essay. Paperback.
Rodopi, Amsterdam/New York, 2004, ISBN:9042011653 
BROWN, James W. "Sensing", "Seeing", "Saying" in Camus' "Noces" : A Meditative Essay. Amsterdam/New York: Rodopi, (2004). First Printing. Pp. (8),[9]-118,(2). 8vo, photo-illustrated yellow card covers, green lettering to front cover and spine. Chiasma, number 14. "James Brown's study of Camus' 'Noces' explores the many crossovers from mind to text by recording the writer'sconsciousness as an emanation and the reader's consciousness as a receptio n-perception. Writer anD reaeder become one in this movement. Their shared mental space is analogous to the locus of the transmission of wisdom in many spiritual traditions. This book focuses on the textual and linguistic means through which the crossover takes place. Brown's new reading of Camus isan outgrowth of bare awareness meditation. He subjects a text that was int ended by Camus as a meditation to anotehr meditative consciousness, that ofthe reader-writer who comes to 'Noces' without ideological baggage. In thi s sense the reading process itself becomes an essay in the original meaningof the world: a trial, an attempt, an inquiry. Another origianl aspect of 'Sensing, Seeing, Saying' is the fact that the reading process doubles as non-directed meditative practice, for it does not attempt to interpret, judge, or evaluate the text in question but aims to engage it spiritually, to enter into its presence. As background to his reading the author uses vipashyana, or insight meditation, which derives directly from the Buddha's own experience and teaching." - from the rear cover.

William Harry Bruce (b. J uly 8, 1934, Toronto) Nova Scotian journalist and freelance writer. “It's no surprise that Mark Twain rejected the “new-fangled” type-writing machine.Writers have always been faithful to whatever worked for them, to whatever kept the words coming, filling the scary blank page or screen. The writing process is mysterious to them and the tricks they have used through the ag es have defied logic. But these tricks have provided the world with literature – and now, thanks to Harry Bruce, with this fascinating book.” - from the back cover. “Harry Bruce, a Torontonian by birth and Nova Scotian by ancestry and choice, worked for Ontario newspapers and magazines from 1955-to 1971 before moving to Nova Scotia.

Ernest Buckler, OC (b. July 19, 1908, West Dalhousie, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia – d. March 4, 1984, Bridgetown, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia).

Claude Thomas Bissell, CC FRSC (b. February 10, 1916, Meaford, Ontario – d. June 21, 2000).

"Claude Bissell first met Ernest Buckler in 1953. Holidaying with his family in Nova Scotia, Bissell dropped in on the novelsit to say how much he admired Buckler's recently published The Mountain and the Valley. That first afternoon was such a success that the Bissells returned to the Buckler house a few hours later. The formal atmosphere of afternoon tea was replaced by a lively, gin-laced evening, and a thirty-year friendship was begun.

In the early years it was fuelled mostly by letters and the Bissells' occasional visits to Nova Scotia. (Buckler hated to leave his home in the country at Centralea, near Bridgetown.) But in 1960 the Bissells bought a summer place in Cape Breton, and thereafter they were able to spend more time with Buckler every year. Nova Scotia is more than a background to this story. Buckler had a clear-eyed sensitivity to the landscape and human character of his native Annapolis Valley. It lay at the heart of his writing, and writing lay at the heart of his life.

Although Bissell focuses on Buckler the man, the book also includes passages of extended critical analysis of Buckler's work. It describes the long apprenticeship of the writer before his sudden emergence as a major figure in 1952 with the publication of 'The Mountain and the Valley'. Bissell shows how a central theme binds together the major books -- the memory of a childhood paradisal world that time could never corrupt.

Much of the conversation and correspondence between the two men was about literature. Buckler was widely read in the modern novel and loved to talk about his favourites. He had a hypersensitivity to the troubles of those close to him. Above all he had an indestructable sense of humour, which fed upon his eccentricities and the foibles of others. It was this sense of humour that enabled him to rise above continuous ill health and the course humanity was taking. A delight to his friends and a restorative to himself, the humour was at its richest and best in his letters.

Many letters are included in the book. Some are from writers who had admired Buckler's fiction, such as Margaret Laurence and Alice Munro. Others deal with his work as a critic for Esquire and the New York Times, among others, and record in unusually vivid language the emotions and efforts of a careful, imaginative author.

An intriguing man emerges from these documents and from Bissell's memories - warm and funny, and a bit of an eccentric. He had a sharp and ready with, with a passion for reading, and a love of good conversation. He also loved to laugh, but was subject to bouts of melancholy. These facets come together in the entertaining portrait of a man remembered by Canadians as a writer of uncommon insight and power, and by Claude Bissell as a friend." - from the dustjacket.

BURBANK, Jane. Intelligentsia and Revolution : Russian Views of Bolshevism,1917-1922. New York and Oxford : Oxford University Press, 1986. First Prin ting. Pp. (4),[v]-viii,(2),3-340,(4). 8vo, maroon cloth with gilt letteringto spine. "From the Bolshevik victory in 1917 to the consolidation of powe r five years later, the Russian revolution inspired a brilliant outburst oftheory and criticism among Russian intellectuals who struggled to comprehe nd their country's dramatic social upheaval. Faced with the collapse of themonarchy and disintegration of life as it had been, Marxists, monarchists, anarchists, populists, liberals, and nationalists alike contributed to a g rowing collection of critical and speculative thought. The October coup rekindled issues that had concerned the intelligentsia in the past -- issues that are still hotly debated today. Why had the revolution happened in Russia? Was this socialism? What did Bolshevik power mean for Russia and the Western world? How would the values of the Russian people be affected? In 'Intelligentsia and Revolution', Jane Burbank recovers these early responses tothe revolution, offering a multi-faceted image of the revolution seen from within. She surveys the vast body of unknown or forgotten polemical litera ture inspired by the Bolshevik takeover in 1917 and the ensuing social, political, and economic turmoil. From Kropotkin, the voice of Russian anarchism, to Ustrialov, a xenophobic nationalist, Burbank follows the disparate theories of these intellectuals, tracing their commitments and dilemmas through the turbulent years of civil war, and for many, into the Russian emigration. Her insightful analysis reveals how the revolution revitalized the political culture of the intelligentsia and, at the same time, exposed the fragile basis of its existence. An informative study of the Russian intelligentsia in its classic role as social critic and articulator of national ideals, 'Intelligentsia and Revolution' paints an important group portrait. it skillfully depicts a broad range of perspectives on the revolution during a crucial period when both action and inaction counted and when the tactical and institutional choices made by the intelligentsia were critical for the future." - from the dustjacket.
